    I loved comic books as a kid as well.Especially Archie,Donald Duck and Scrooge.Some of the new comic books are not very appropriate now.Their was a thread about them recently on RR.

    Yes, I was thinking while doing that post that if there are comics in Heaven, there would not be bad stuff in them. A while back I read something about a new character being introduced into comics that I would not even want to describe. Anyway, only good content in Heaven!

    Hey, I used to like Archie comics, too!

    "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:19-21

    I was born in late '64, so i missed being a boomer. I voted for the Lone Ranger, and the Six Million Dollar Man. they were my favorites as a child.

    As for my favorite heroes in tv and comics:

    John Locke- Lost
    Officer Rick Grimes- The Walking Dead (tv never read the comic)
    Captain Malcolm Reynolds- Firefly
    Spiderman
    Blade
    The Punisher

    That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
    And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    Prodigal - I realized after I had created the poll that I had forgotten Spiderman!

    That's ok, i figured it was an oversite. I get my sarcastic side from all the Spidy comics i read as a kid.

    Hey, what about The Phantom - The Ghost Who Walks !!!! Was never allowed to buy them (comic books) but used to borrow them. Also Archie, Spiderman, The Flash. Was more of a tomboy than I thought

    My heroes have always been cowboys. And sometimes Indians!
    Grew up in the 50's with all the classic western series. Sometimes
    the horse was the hero! Ahhh, memories....

    Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear

    Momas, don't let your babies grow up.....


    Yep I remember cowboys, tire swing horses, leaver action bb guns.....
    and army guys were like that - tanks instead of horses, and you didn't have to reload as much...


    then came chrome jets...rockets....Tobor the 8th man, Ultraman, Star Trek, Captain Scarlett, Space 1999....

    then Neal Armstrong took his step....


    I'm glad we have a horse. All I need now is a wrentch, clockworks, keys, and a lever action magnito powered ray gun..... steampunk is so cool.

    Just found this video today featuring Guy Williams as Zorro. He was my first TV hero!

    Oh my, I had such a crush on Adam West and Burt Ward from Batman and Robin. I loved Adam West's voice....and still do. I know he does voice overs today with commercials. I love the cliff hangers they had and the way "PUNCH", "ZAP", "BAM", and other phrases would come up when B & R would punch out the villians

    Reruns of Superman (was too young when the program first came out) - I thought Clark Kent in those black rim glasses was so cool
    Batman & Robin
    Six Million Dollar Man & Bionic Woman
    Wonder Woman - every time it was on, I would put on my one piece red/white/blue bathing suit and pretend I was Linda Carter
    Til we meet in Beulah Land!
